Following her sisters’ examples, she becomes a mail-order bride, and after a short correspondence with clock maker and jeweler Edward Parker, she moves to Denver to become his wife.

    Sorry that I didn’t get this posted on Friday. I want to share the first line from the first chapter instead of from the prologue: (This is a REALLY fun book to read!)

    A New Shade of Summer by Nicole Deese:

    “I jiggled the locked doorknob again and wished, not for the first time, that it was legal to use tranquilizer darts on adolescent boys.”
